Cold showers and restraint are good things
The kicker, of course, came when we got back on the subway some 3+ hours later: they were [still ? again ?] on the subway, in the same car as us. And they were still going at it. And it was still embarrassing. Christina apparently caught a fragment of their conversation, in which the guy asked "Is there anything you don't like about me ? Anything at all ?" while, of course, gazing deeply into her eyes. One shudders to think about what they're like when they're actually in private, though I don't really see how it could really get any more intense.
In other news, Christina has noticed 2 more differences between Seattle and Boston:
- She thinks that people here really, really like ice cream because we see lots of people eating it all the time. Personally, I think we may be getting a biased sample because we're very close to 2 ice cream stores, so we're somewhat more likely to see lots of people eating it. And I also think it's pretty understandable that people eat lots of ice cream, given the miserable heat humidity here.
- There is a Dunkin Donuts on every corner and there are people in them at all hours of the day eating donuts. I'm a pretty big fan of donuts but I have to agree with her that there's a time and place for them, and 1 o'clock in the afternoon or 7 pm in the evening isn't really the time for them.
